The Monterey can be adapted to your child as they grow, keeping their car rides safe and comfortable for years. Children anywhere from 30 to 120 pounds and 38 to 63 inches tall can use this adjustable booster seat. A simple dial on the seat's back increases the width to accommodate a child's shoulders up to 20 inches wide, and the headrest offers 11 different height settings.
Adjusting for the perfect fit not only makes for a comfortable ride, it also optimizes safety. Additionally, the Monterey can be used as a backless booster.
The Monterey employs AirTek foam padding, which not only provides luxurious cushioning but also boasts exceptional breathability. A plush cloth surface feels soft and gentle against your child's skin. Two recline positions allow the Monterey to fit a wide variety of vehicle seats and further enhance comfort.
Not only does the Monterey keep your child safe and comfortable, but it is also designed for convenience. The seat back is removable so it can be packed flat, making storage or travel a breeze. Two extra deep cup holders are angled to keep drinks upright and provide a place to keep toys and other items within easy reach. When not needed, both cup holders fold out of the way. Rubber bottom grips ensure no-slip installation and protect your vehicle's upholstery.
